A tour for cyclists & cyclists who tour! Spend the day with a local tour guide. An epic tour of Brooklyn with stops for breakfast, lunch & tastings at distilleries, brewers, chocolate factories & pie bakers, covering over 25 Brooklyn Neighborhoods. There is no other experience like this - period!
This tour starts in DUMBO, under the MANHATTAN and BROOKLYN BRIDGES on beautiful waterfront with sweeping views of downtown MANHATTAN from across the East River.
From DUMBO, we visit the historic and newly redeveloped BROOKLYN NAVY YARD, heading into the South Part of WILLIAMSBURG a neighborhood of artists, graffiti, and some of the coolest Bars, Coffee Shops, and BREWERIES in NYC.
We stop for Breakfast & Early Morning Snacks at DEVOCION in Williamsburg, before exploring the neighborhood to see THE WAVERY HOTEL, MCLAREN PARK & THE BROOKLYN BREWERY. We ride into GREENPOINT, BROOKLYN & then into BUSWHICK for, perhaps, a stop at ROBERTA's, famous for it's outside gardens and the best pizza in Brooklyn.
We head to FORT GREEN PARK, with the MARTYRED PRISONER'S MONUMENT, North of Bustling DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN- the landscape changes dramatically and one gets a view of the amazing diversity of Brooklyn! We pass by BARCLAY'S CENTER and Historically Preserved Government Buildings.
The next stop is THE GRAND ARMY PLAZA with views of THE SOLDIERS AND SAILOR'S ARCH and the BROOKLYN PUBLIC LIBRARY.
We ride through PROSPECT PARK! No other bike tour offers such a ride. NONE! This is a Brooklyn Cycling Paradise as no automobles are allowed in the park and we own the road. Perhaps a live band will be playing at THE SHELL.
We head through PARK SLOPE, GOWANUS & CARROL GARDENS. We might stop at OTHER HALF BREWING COMPANY, depending on the day.
We ride into RED HOOK, a peninsula cut off from the rest of Brooklyn, for a quick snack and drink. This destinations takes a little work to reach unless your are riding with us!
We will stop for a snack along the waterfront. We will visit STEVE'S KEY LIME PIES and take pictures of the STATUE OF LIBERTY on VALENTINO PIER. This is the BEST VIEW OF LADY LIBERTY in all of Brooklyn.
We will stop at WIDOW JANE DISTILLERY!
We might do a quick chocolate tasting at RAAKA VIRGIN CHOCOLATE!
Next stop? COBBLE HILL with Brownstone Lined Streets, Small Family Owned Restaurants, and charming amenities!
